Was Alfredsson aiming for Niedermayer?
Mon, June 4, 2007

Do you think Daniel Alfredsson was aiming at the Ducks captain near the end of the second period?

Could this play be a turning point for the Ducks? Will it give them any extra motivation to finish off the Senators at home in Anahiem?

Have your say in our forum.

Frankly who cares about the Stanley Cup this year. It's freakin' June already. I can't beleive they took a week off before the finals! This isn't the NFL nor does it have the same financial backing. Too many Teams, too many millionaires playing who don't give a damn about the game. Even The Great One is tainted. As for Alfredsson, maybe he watched Rollerball the night before (1975 version not the lame 2002) He needs to resign as Captain, he is a poor example. Shame.

On another note I can't beleive a Team called the Ducks (Disney!!) is going to win the cup! What's next Hamilton Hello Kitties! bahhhhhhh

Of course it was cheap. Where did the idea that the pock didn't hit Neidermayer come from. I just watched it again on Youtube. It hits him squarely and drops to his right. He picks it up and looks like he is going to shoot it back at Alfie, but doesn't.

Alfredsson is dirty, period. I don't remember who he drilled from behind earlier this playoff (behind the net) but if Pronger had done it - 2 games. If Simon had done it - end of season, at least.

Where are the refs? Can anyone remember worse officiating? Touch a guy on the hands with the blade of your stick and watch out. Drill a guy in the head with an elbow and all you have to worry about is Campbell. Shoot a puck at a guy or give him 3 cross checks in the back (including one in the head) like Alfie did in the last couple of minutes to Beauchemin and if your name is Alfredsson, no penalty.

I'm pretty neutral watching this finals (Flames fan) but the way I see it Ottawa's got nothing to complain about from the lack of officiating. It's been largely in their favour.

Typical goon play, it's bred into them when they don the jersey. It's a CLASSLESS organization, with a roster full of cheapshot artist. Neil and Alfredsson being the worst, and it's a shame for the few players that are actually half decent. Neil dives and leaves his feet all the time. In the 2nd period last night, he charged from one side to the other to try and nail O'donnell I believe. He left his feet and lead with his elbows, if he would have hit him, it likely would have resulted in serious injury. No one says anything because it poor sens, they are always cheated. And in the one cbc replay you see Alfie look right at Neidermeye and shot the puck. But no suspension, because it's ottawa.

just luck the tucker incident, just like the berard incident, just like heatley on bell slash, just like alfie on tallinder, barasso on perreault(2games), neil on drury, neil on gleason( this year on the icing, slashed his feet out from under him).

IT'S A COMPLETE CLASSLESS GROUP..

and finally HAHA again!!!

and what's the deal with the refs? they call these tiny little hooks and grabs for penalties, then Krusty tries to take someone's head off (and Pronger too)...and no penalty!!! wtf??? and about the Sens choker issue.....they are incapable of ever winning a game that they absolutely have to.....when the going gets real tough, the Sens got no tough to get going, they just fold up.....the Ducks are playing Leaf hockey!!! yeah!!!!!!

Well let me say this.. Alfredsson is a Dirty Player,we saw that a couple years ago when he Nailed Tucker from behind... Now he may have cost the Sen's The Stanley Cup..I think he should be suspended..Attempt to injure
David Townson, 2007-06-05 11:42:01

It's amazing how consistent the Sens and their fans are. Neil one of the nastiest, dirtiest in the league? Nope, he's just talented, underrated and healthily aggressive. Alfredsson a perennial coward, a behind-the-back specialist, lacking any of the character necessary for a captain to take his team anywhere? Nope, he's just a victim, misunderstood and one of the greatest players in the game. I think the biggest difference between the Leafs and the Sens is that when Domi clipped Niedermayer, the team was ashamed and realized they had no business beating the Devils that year. The Sens are given gift after gift after gift, from kicking pucks in, from Neil deserving at least as many suspensions, if not more, with more severity, than Pronger, with their adoring fans and media never realizing just how dirty a bunch of opportunists they are. They are incapable of it. Krusty could pick up the puck in his hand, skate behind his linemates as they slashed and head-shotted the opposing team all the way to the goalie, then throw the puck in the net and the fans would scream in delight as the refs did nothing. Here's a challenge for you- think back to the many, many players the Sens have injured over the years- from Berard to Drury and on and on- and please explain to me how it is that they are such a clean team. Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

blown OUT of proposion, end of story.
none, 2007-06-05 11:41:12

Can you imagine if Pronger would of done this towards Redden? Suspension? I think so. I guess Niedermayer needed to get badly hurt for Alfie to get suspended.
Marc, 2007-06-05 11:36:22

Only a week after reporters went after Muckler for comparing Alfie to Messier as a great leader, he sets the record straight once and for all with a single shot at the end of the period. Anyone that knows anything about leaders in sports knew this was a rediculous comment, but now everyone does... Way to make your GM look Alfie.
